Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive
A lot of people (me included) seem to have a similar problem with this particular SanDisk model.The problem stems from the design of the drive: the slide that retracts and extends the connector (the silver piece that you plug into the computer) is easily damaged. If this happens, the connector won't extend completely and it can't get a solid connection to the USB port; without full contact, the drive won't be recognized by the computer and the device won't get enough power (this is why the LED won't light up, but the drive gets hot). The solution sounds a bit scary, but it's easy enough: GENTLY remove the drive's plastic casing (I pried mine open with a very thin screw driver). Hold the exposed drive by the edges, taking care to minimize contact with the now unprotected chip and hardware inside, and plug it in to a USB port. Mine lit up right away, and I was able to retreive the files and copy them on to a different, and hopefully more reliable drive.
Hope this helps.
